Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health

General Scheme of the Patient Safety (Licensing) Bill: Discussion

9:00 am

Ms Mary Dunnion:

Yes, it would be. One would hope, first, that the provider would do it but ultimately, the powers would be available to take those actions. In many ways it begins with the soft approach unless the risk is really high and then it can transcend into hard regulation, which goes up to cancelling a registration or the revoking of a licence in the context of healthcare.
